MATCH QUOTES

“It’s hard to describe, to come here and play so well. We deserved to win because we played brilliantly. “We’re capable of attacking every team. We didn’t come here just to hit them on the break. We’re capable of scoring and, unfortunately, conceding. “We’re a miles better side than when we came here last season.” Martin O’Neill.
